Happy Easter! We Have A Winner!

Everyone has a different way of doing a random drawing. I wasn't sure this one would work and couldn't actually get the camera to click at the precise moment...but perhaps this photo indicates what I did?

All names were input into Excel, the printout was then cut into strips with a single name on them, folded in half to make them all the same size, and then put in the vintage 1980s Tupperware canister. I then offered it to The Meezer. She wasn't quite sure what I wanted at first. Then decided (upon my shaking the canister and making the papers rustle) that perhaps there was something interesting inside, after all.

When she stuck her nose inside? One stuck to it. (yes, The Meezer has a sweet wet nose)

And the name on the piece of paper?


Congratulations, Sydney! I've already emailed you...

And thank you for everyone who entered and commented on the closure for Glady.

OH! Which closure won? Well, the count went like this:
Ribbon: 13
Fabric: 9
Elastic: 27
(and there was one vote for an option I didn't offer!)

Which is a really good thing. I agree with the elastic votes! (After all, I'd already been using that closure on Rose and Oressa, so it must be one I like!)

I hope everyone's Easter was a lovely, family-filled day, and I hope you got in some knitting time! (I did...)

LOL! Great way to choose. I almost used something like that for my last contest. I can't believe I actually won. They're so nice.

I'm glad the Meezer knows how to host a contest. The next thing we know, she'll have her own yarn line.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
